Xinhua/Mao Siqian: Shenzhen launched China’s first guidelines for building a child-friendly city eight years ago. Since then, the city has been rolling out a spate of measures spearheading the construction towards this aim.
Statistics show that by October of 2023, 452 city-level child-friendly bases and over 1,260 children’s parks of various categories have been set up to gradually improve children’s activity space and educational facilities in Shenzhen.
In the meantime, 580 children’s deliberation organisations, 761 children’s homes at different communities and more than 1, 270 nurseries have emerged to enrich children’s life and bring convenience for children’s travelling.
The word “child-friendly” in Shenzhen has been successfully transferred from a mere concept to the whole city’s consensus and collective action. Shenzhen will keep piloting and striving to achieve its goal of building a child-friendly city with its own characteristics.
